The exotic atmosphere of the Caribbean pervaded the Casino 2000 in Mondorf on Thursday evening as the Femmes Développement charity hosted its annual gala dinner. The event has been one of the chief fund-raisers for the charity for 12 years now, and attracts a large number of generous guests.
The charity was established by Luxembourg-based businesswoman Luisella Moreschi, who serves as its vice-president, after a meeting with Rwandan priest Abbé Pierre, who is the association’s president. Abbé Pierre addressed guests with a moving speech about dignity, the fight to prevent violence and the role of the widows of the genocide in society in Rwanda.
MC Gabriel Boisante kept the evening flowing in his inimitable style, while further entertainment was provided by Luxembourg singer Magaly Dahan, French singer Maryan Rousset and dancers from the Magma show revue.
Thanks were handed to Magaly Carroll, who works tirelessly to organise the event every year and also managed to snaffle a whole host of luxury tombola prizes to futher boost the charity’s funds.
